Noviken transmitter - valley spun instead of tower

Noviken transmitter is a transmitter near Gildesdal at 66° 58" 58" N 13° 52" 23" E, which is used for transmitting messages to submerged submarines on 16.4 kHz. Normally such a facility has supertall masts. However Noviken transmitter uses as antenna several wires spun between two mountains, which are shown on http://www.fofo.no/forsvaretsforum.n...r.-mwRLI5D.ips . Transmitters of this kind are and were rare. I know only of the following
* Tavolara Island, Italy ( in service)
* Jim Creek Naval Radio Station, Oso, Washington, USA ( in service)
* Herzogstand, Germany ( dismantled before World War II)
* Hauku Omega Transmitter, Hawaii ( dismantled)
* Aldra Omega Transmitter, Norway ( dismantled)
